It’s been 26 years since Friends debuted on the silver screen, but the show is still as hot as ever. Whether you watched the show when it originally aired or spent the last year binging all 236 episodes ahead of Friends: The Reunion on HBO Max, there’s no doubt that the Friends crew has always been there for you — especially as a comfort watch during the spooky season.
This year, serve up a serious dose of nostalgia by going with a Friends TV show Halloween costume. Chances are, you already have a favorite character from the show, but in case you don’t, pick one that makes for a fun costume (we vote Joey’s football outfit). Since there are so many different looks from throughout the years (the show aired for 10 seasons, after all), we rounded up Phoebe, Rachel, Monica, Joey, Ross and Chandler’s most memorable ensembles — the red sweater Ross wore when he learned that he was Emma’s father, for example. What’s more, all of these homemade costume ideas embrace the very best in ’90s fashion, everything from tiny tuxedo vests to The Rachel haircut.
If you really want to live up to the show’s name, convince five friends to dress up as the other characters for the most epic group costume ever. Or grab the Chandler to your Monica (or vice versa) for a cute couples costume, inspired by one of TV’s sweetest duos.
Phoebe Buffay Halloween Costume
Phoebe will forever be the free-spirited character we all know and love! Keep it cute and casual by layering a white long-sleeve turtleneck underneath a midi dress, then complete the look with a pair of combat boots. Don’t forget to break out your guitar before the party ends, so you can wow everyone with your rendition of “Smelly Cat.”
Rachel Green Halloween Costume
Here’s your chance to go to Central Perk (or at least pretend to). Dress the part by wearing a plain black dress and waitress apron just like Rachel often did. Carry around a pad and pen to jot down orders during the party.
Ross Geller Halloween Costume
Enter “The One With the Red Sweater.” Recreate one of Ross’ most memorable outfits (Spudnik aside) with a red sweater and classic blue jeans.
Joey Tribbiani Halloween Costume
Here’s one way to get the party started. Show up with football under your arm and pass it to your buddies all night long. Commit to the character by wearing a football jersey (your team’s or a standard one like Joey’s).
Monica Geller Halloween Costume
A chef in the kitchen, but make it fashion. Embrace Monica’s timeless style with a tuxedo vest, long-sleeve tee and skintight mini skirt. If you happen to whip up a few party appetizers while wearing this costume, then you’ll really win Halloween.
Chandler Bing Halloween Costume
Because everybody wants to be the funny friend. Throw together this homemade costume with items you already have in your closet: a sweater vest, button-down shirt, khaki slacks and leather loafers. Just bring along your sense of humor to really play the part.
